Today, I heard that empty thumping again.

The sound of sand hitting the lowered coffin of a loved one.

An echo reminder of the emptiness that the flesh represents.

A body is present in there, but there is no presence.

As we get sucked into our journeys, it is helpful to get a glimpse of our common end once in a while.

I am thankful for life, and the opportunity to give, care and share.
